EGGPLANT

(27 varieties to choose from) Updated for 2021

 

Plant culture is similar to tomatoes, though we start them inside about April 1.  Set out plants 1 foot apart.  Flea beetles are the biggest pests to watch for. 

Eggplant Parmesan is my favorite food!  Everyone should try some eggplant this year.  Enjoy the abundance we were provided.  Seed packets will contain

around 50 seeds.
